Adding the Bed Wood Touch to a Custom F-150
A wood bed floor can add a great retro, hot rod touch to a late-model truck. Bed Wood & Parts offer wood floor kits for a variety of truck models from to 2011. More than 40 different varieties of woods and finishes are available, everything from domestic wood to exotic species, ash to zebra wood is available. Stainless steel rails connect the wood pieces and utilize hidden fasteners to secure them to your bed floor. The company’s RetroLiner is a new option for late-model trucks. It comes with each piece pre-cut, milled, sanded and ready for staining, varnishing and installation. For our application, a custom ‘05 Ford F-150 being built over at Status in Rockwall, Texas, we opted for Cypress wood, chosen for its slight red hue and subtle grain.
